Reading with Eva Reisinger
Journalist and author Eva Reisinger comes to the BUCHBOX! in Kastanienallee and reads from her new book "Männer töten". Journalist, author and presenter Mareice Kaiser will be the moderator for the evening.
Rapidly told utopia of a defensible feminism in an Austrian village: Anna Maria lives a typical big city life. She works in a hip company, goes partying with her girlfriends on weekends and has a complicated ex-relationship. Until she meets Hannes at the bar of a nightclub.
He is from Engelhartskirchen, an Upper Austrian village she has never heard of before. And she certainly does not expect to wake up one morning with Hannes in this nest. When it does happen, the clichés greet her at first: cows, dumplings, church tower bells. But then Anna Maria notices that not everything wants to fit into the picture. Why is there a female priest even though the village is Catholic? How come the women here celebrate much louder than elsewhere? Where have the men gone? And what does all this have to do with Kathrin Glock?
Eva Reisinger, born in 1992, grew up in the Upper Austrian province between Zeltfest and Wodkabull. She studied journalism in Vienna, worked in media houses in Hamburg, Berlin and Istanbul. She lives as a freelance writer in Vienna and dreams of matriarchy.
